Fortunately, light is a relatively easy weakness to exploit, so you should be fine, @NintendoByNature .... Let us know how it goes

I´ve recently got this game and am really enjoying it. Does anyone know how the exploring/sailing works? Pressed ´´Start Exploring´´ about three days ago but it still displays ´´Time Spend Explorimg 00:00´´.

Bamm!

@NintendoByNature good! 😊👍 Her job has really neat abilities. Especially one which helps a lot with status ailments with more freedom than the apothecary job.

@CactusMan If I’m not mistaken it requires internet and putting it in sleep mode.

@X-Slayer Thank you. Putting it in sleep mode made the timer run. I always shut the Nintendo Switch down when I´m not playing.

Bamm!

@BruceCM spent about 1.5-2 hours on the dungeon leading up to Adam. Haven't gotten to him yet bc it was about 1230am when I got to a save point. Hoping he's not too difficult 😬

Well, he shouldn't be at this stage, @NintendoByNature .... There were a few points for it in that other thread, so see how it goes & we'll help more if needed

@BruceCM @X-Slayer gave Adam a few tries last night to no avail.. I think I've said it a couple times already, but status effects never seem to work for me and it's rather frustrating. 1 out of every 20-25 times I'm able to do poison or sleep. So I had that as Elvis' sub job and spiritmaster as main( for healthbringer). The poison finally worked at the very end ( 20 something'th time)Monk and white mage for seth, phantom and white mage for Gloria, and Adele is shieldmaster and monk.

I got him down to a low enough HP but then he annihilated my entire team in one turn even though we had full health. With that said, I switched to freelancer for Elvis to get some offense going since poison wasn't really working and it was pretty much a waste of a turn every time I'd try. And what was worse was we were stuck idle at battling while he was in between 30000-37000hp as he kept healing so I was just treading water.

Got my butt kicked again a couple times so I put it down. I'll give it a couple more shots tonight but it really stinks battling for 30 min each time to finally die. Looking for an easy way to defeat him. And what status effects would actually work to take him out quickly when he gets low enough hp to not do that 1 shot death move on us. Thanks in advance.

Well, I didn't really try many status effects on him, so perhaps he is resistant to most, @NintendoByNature .... It's mostly a race to take him out ASAP, since I don't remember him using any party annihilating moves! He's weak to axes, if you have anyone who can use those & then a black mage for thundaga as that's the only element he doesn't halve damage of! If you're having that much trouble with him, the final boss will definitely wipe the floor with you

Uh, after the 'main boss', there's a pretty extensive post game, @NintendoByNature .... Guess what those bosses are like, then? (Hint, not easier)

@BruceCM think I have no choice but to shelve the game. It's sad bc I do love it, but I just spent 3 hours on Adam, not including my hour and a half last night. Did I also mention I'm playing on casual? Lol. It's crazy honestly, since I'm at level 51-52 for my party and everything I've read is mid 40s should be adequate. I've gotten as low as 5000hp a couple times and then he wipes the floor with me with his death move( forgot the name). It just becomes a viscous cycle of him re-healing and me not doing enough damage to take him out. It wears you out after a while honestly. And like you said, if the bosses are even harder later on, I'm not cut out of for it. Put a good 45-50 hours in, so I did my best, I just can't hack it haha. Thanks for all of the tips though. They did help!

Shame, @NintendoByNature .... Going to look up the rest of the story, then? I got wiped by Adam 1st time there but just managed him after adjusting jobs, so I'm not sure why you're having that much trouble with him

@NintendoByNature There’s an easier way of defeating Adam. If your Phantom job is at job level 12 (its second special ability) you can inflict with 100% the status ailments that he is vulnerable to. He can be inflicted (if Phantom is Lv 12) with paralyze, poison.

Edit: He is also vulnerable to charm and contagion. Also if you use the Salve-Maker’s Milk Poison does a lot of damage (if I’m not mistaken when used when he is poisoned). I read that you can evade his death-name attack (forgot its name) using Jump or you can keep paralyzing him and/or charm him with Phantom (Job Lv 12) using another sub job (Salve/Beatsmaster) or using items if I’m not mistaken. You can inflict more than one or two status at a time, so don’t worry about missing if you have Phantom at J. Lv. 12.

Oh, cool, that's probably something that helped me as I had just got my Phantom around that level but I had to change some other jobs to go with it, @X-Slayer ....

@BruceCM @X-Slayer thanks again for the feedback. Thats part of the problem though, is I can rarely get him poisoned. I'm frustrated i can't get passed this boss and I'm worried it'll be even tougher from here on out. I may try one more time today but that'll be it. Im not crazy about repeating the same thing over and over again spending multiple hours on it. The game hasn't dulled for me though, so that's good. It just has these crazy difficulty spikes that are hard to overcome, even on casual.

@NintendoByNature I can't say I played with status much, but sub spiritmaster made me pretty much invincible for most boss battles. Had one person as a white mage. The rest varied. Auto healing hp/mp, reviving and status clear (forget the actual names) was awesome to have.

@komodo182 yea health and spirit bringer are amazing to use and I spam them quite often. The problem I'm running into with this particular boss is he's able to heal himself by 9,999hp and If Im lucky I'm doing 5k damage at the very most with only 1 member. Everyone else does 1,000-1,500 damage. So it's a battle of treading water.
